In recent weeks there have been several incidents in which supporters of US President Donald Trump, wearing 'Make America Great Again' hats, have reportedly been attacked. In a recent incident in late September, a 77-year-old military veteran in California wearing a MAGA hat was reportedly attacked by two suspects.

The New York Police Department is looking for a young man accused of attempted robbery after reportedly pulling a knife on a victim while trying to steal a MAGA hat in a Manhattan neighborhood last week.

The police department tweeted on its NYPD Crime Stoppers account a photo of a suspect, calling on New Yorkers to provide detectives with information about the man.

A police source told Fox News that the suspect approached a 47-year-old man standing on the sidewalk in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood and tried to steal a MAGA hat he was wearing. Eventually, the would-be thief reportedly pulled a knife and threatened to “stick” the victim.

“The victim, a 47-year-old male, was standing on the sidewalk when the suspect approached him and tried to take his hat off his head,” police said, according to the outlet. “The suspect then displays a knife and stated, ‘Give me your hat or I will stick you’ while attempting to take the hat.”

The suspect did not steal the $7.99 MAGA hat.

In late September, a 77-year-old military veteran was reportedly attacked in California by a man and a woman, apparently for wearing a Make America Great Again hat and a 'Back the Blue' mask, according to KRCR News.

MAGA is an acronym for Make America Great Again – a 2016 Trump campaign slogan, which was updated to 'Keep America Great' in the 2020 campaign.
